Nvidia’s cloud gaming service arrives on LG TVs

 

Nvidia’s GeForce Now app for LG TVs has exited beta, the graphics card manufacturer announced today. The cloud gaming service was released in beta last November for select LG televisions and lets you stream games off Nvidia’s servers bought on stores like Steam and the Epic Games Store.

If you’ve got a compatible 2021 LG TV, you can download the GeForce Now app from the LG Content Store. To celebrate the launch, Nvidia is offering six months of GeForce Now’s Priority tier free with qualifying LG TV purchases between February 1st and March 27th.

Although it’s previously been possible to access Nvidia’s streaming service on the Nvidia Shield, being able to access the service directly from a TV itself is a much more streamlined solution. Naturally, it’s also the cheaper option if you’re someone who doesn’t already own Nvidia’s set-top box and don’t fancy plugging another GeForce Now-compatible device into your TV.

Alongside the official launch of the LG TV app, Nvidia also says it’s rolling out new resolution upscaling options to GeForce Now. These are designed to make up the difference when your streaming resolution (determined by your network’s bandwidth) is less than your display resolution. There are now three upscaling modes: “standard,” which is on by default, “enhanced,” which offers better quality at the risk of adding latency, and “AI-enhanced,” which offers the best upscaling quality but is only available on the Nvidia Shield or PCs with select Nvidia GPUs. As well as upscaling, the feature can also downscale content when your display resolution is lower than your streaming resolution.

Nvidia also has a handful of new games coming to its streaming service this week: Mortal Online 2, Daemon X Machina, Metro Exodus Enhanced Edition, Tropico 6, and Assassin’s Creed III Deluxe Edition.

This part made me laugh "Although it’s previously been possible to access Nvidia’s streaming service on the Nvidia Shield, being able to access the service directly from a TV itself is a much more streamlined solution. Naturally, it’s also the cheaper option"

 I paid a lot of money for your "Smart TV" i could have paid less than half the price for a normal TV and a Nvidia Shield.

Now you are saying that my expensive LG TV is not even compatible with this Nvidia app and i now need to buy another LG TV just to use this app........ Please explain how that is the cheaper option?

I have had nothing but problem after problem with my LG TV. They have actively downgraded my TV and stopped support for anything useful, you can not even update Chrome or change to anything other than the three worst search engines. I have about half a Gig of onboard memory.... for everything. The app store is a disgrace. I can not stream without the TV closing down to "save memory" i have constant problems with pages loading, the list is endless. 

I made a promise to myself that i would never fall for the LG BS and ever buy another LG TV.

      I can stream ABC content using either the iView app on our LG G1 65" OLED, or via the iView Android TV app that is installed on a Chromecast with Google TV that is plugged into one of the G1 HDMI ports. If I stream content using the app on the TV, every few minutes there's a momentary (fraction of a second) interruption to both sound and video. If I stream the same content using the app on the Chromecast, I get no such interruptions. Both TV and Chromecast are using wired Ethernet connections to the same switch, so I can't see that these interruptions are due to a network problem, or I'd see them on both devices. It would seem to be a problem with the app provided on the TV. Other streaming services that we access via apps on the TV (Netflix, Stan, Amazon Prime, etc) do not show the same problem.

      I want to be able to turn on my TV without it automatically launching a cable channel. ( or repeatedly asking me if I want to turn on the cable box).  Is there any way to "just' start with the home screen? Also when I've been watching something (app or cable) and go back to Home screen, it will go back to what I was watching if there is no input for a minute or so. grrrr. so annoying

      The NEW Amazon Prime Video App update is horrible. Cannot access any content from my Shudder channel subscription. Constant errors.

      User Interface image as shown on 2021 LG TVs
      A user-friendly hub for content consumption, the modern smart TVs offer access to more movies, series, documentaries and live-streamed events than one can count. The downside to having such a wealth of content options so conveniently available is figuring out what to watch.
      To help users discover great, new content, LG continues to streamline and expand the viewing experience on its market-leading smart TVs. The company’s webOS smart TV platform is constantly evolving, growing its capabilities while simultaneously simplifying users’ path to greater viewing enjoyment.

      As part of these ongoing efforts, LG’s latest Smart TV models are the first to have an opted-in enhanced Prime Video experience, with easy access to personalized content suggestions available directly from the “Now Streaming” section on the LG TV home screen.

      This means watching a favorite show on the global streaming service is as easy as turning on the TV and heading to the “Now Streaming” section using either voice command or the Magic Remote. In addition to watching a movie or show right where they left off, users can browse Prime Video’s content recommendations on screen without having to open the Prime Video app. These recommendations reflect relevant content based on their tastes and viewing history. The TV will show the last two watched titles and a list of personalized content users might enjoy from new shows, movies or live sports.
      Pop-up notification
      The time and hassle-saving enhancement rolled out globally with a recent software update for LG’s 2021/2022 model Smart TVs. These TV owners will be alerted to the availability of the Prime Video user-experience enhancement by a pop-up notification when launching the Prime Video app and they will be able to opt in or out on the Prime Video settings page.
      Opt-in Settings
      One of the most popular streaming services on LG TVs worldwide, Prime Video can accommodate any taste or interest with its impressive selection of content. Among its expansive library of movies, TV shows, documentaries and more, are acclaimed Amazon Originals such as The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, The Boys and Tomorrow War, as well as exclusive live sporting events like Thursday Night Football. The service is included with membership to Amazon Prime, see

      The optimized Prime Video experience on LG Smart TVs is representative of Amazon and LG’s continuing commitment to expanding and streamlining the user and viewing experience.
